If you were a teenage girl when I was a teenage girl then I am pretty sure you will recognise the quote that is the title of this post…
“I carried a watermelon????”
As said by Baby in Dirty Dancing when she can’t believe she said something so stupid the first time she was introduced to the very sexy dancing instructor played by Patrick Swayze.
That line could easily be the story of my life.
As a teenager I did it often – replayed all the stupid things I had said over and over in total disbelief that I could have been so un-cool. I am not a teenager any more (I am sure you are surprised to read that!) but I still find myself replaying conversations in my head, wondering how ‘un-cool’ I sounded to those around me.
I can’t believe I said that!!!! Did I embarrass myself and not even realise it at the time? Did what I said come across the way I meant it to? Did everyone think I was just a total moron for even opening my mouth at all?
Surely I am not alone here? Am I the only one who often finds herself thinking “I carried a watermelon??????”
